I received this: I had 1 copyright takedown, which is one strike. But maybe this was because I had unsuccessfully monetized 6 videos on this particular channel, this was last month, but this message I received yesterday. Could this be the criteria for 3 month disabled monetization ? Is this manual or automatic message ? is this gonna influence ad_sense payment ? They are going after youtube users like crazy... There was nothing like this before, when monetization is disabled after 1 strike. Or maybe that's only for new channels (not older than 6 months). Yeah and I checked google, this has started recently, all posts on google forum are from December 2015, Jan, Feb of 2016. And in /features page I see Is account the whole account which includes other sub-channels (google account) ? Or by Account they mean this particular channel ? Does anybody know how it contributes ? Do youtube count these things on all accounts and their sub-channels ? Is there some kind of limit, how many third party content claims can you have or how many times can your video be blocked worldwide ? CaseyNeistat is an example of 3rd party content claims, lots of his videos are claimed, because he has used copyrighted music in his videos, but he is still OK. I've seen many of these automated messages, I received them on old account and on new one.. But on old one after those multiple unsuccessful monetization tries they didn't disable monetization, it just asked for commercial rights proof for every video. But now it works just like it says in this message... Or maybe it's only for new channels ? My old one was 1 or 2 years old.
